Father’s Day with Jack Links Jerky

When I visit my Dad the first thing my boys do is usually tell him they are hungry. We could of just ate before walking in the door but it never fails they are ready to eat as soon as they get there. It could have to do with the fact my Dad always has the best snacks and gives the boys pretty much whatever they want to eat. I use to fight it but have come to realize he is their Papa and if he wants to give them some treats it is totally fine. We have already given my dad his gift for  ...

Ultimate Flora Probiotic Critical Care 50 Billion

Growing up I always had a bad stomach. I figured it was just something I had to deal with as many in my family were dealing with the same. I spoke with many doctors and I got mixed suggestions. Some would tell me it was an intolerance, others would tell me I was not drinking enough water and one even said my stomach was just too sensitive. It was frustrating but for over 15 years I just dealt with it. When speaking with a co-worker I mentioned how frustrating it was to always need to know  ...

Simple, Smooth and Silky with the Schick Intuition Razor #GIVEAWAY

As a busy mom I know all to well that life can get a little complicated.  Finding ways to simplify my daily routine is a must. Two boys, a husband, a snake, lizard and cat means there is always something to do but never enough time. Throw in my own self care and I may as well just throw in the white flag and give up. I can not tell you the many times I put on shorts or a dress get in the car only to notice I should of shaved my legs. That is when I start trying to rationalize being late so  ...

Disney’s NEW Beauty and the Beast on Blu-ray #GIVEAWAY

Remakes of movies can be a huge gamble. When I heard Disney wanted to turn Beauty and the Beast into an animated film I couldn’t help but think, WHY. I mean this is one of my favourite films of all times and I always said if it was not broke don’t fix it. If we are honest I even decided I wouldn’t view it in a theatre as I was worried it would be horrible. But after all my friends saw it I only heard amazing things and finally decided to go see it. The kicker? By the time  ...

Our Generation Dolls, Sets and A Boy

Remember when we chatted about gender and how it doesn’t have room in our playroom? As mentioned I was going to show you some pretty awesome toys that are normally bought for “girls”. From the start it never occurred to us that dolls were only for girls and trucks only for boys. We allow free choice. My youngest has really taken to his Our Generation Doll Sia. She is beautiful with bright red hair and her little scientist coat. My guy has enjoyed tucking her into bed and  ...

Whippin’ and Snippin’ This Father’s Day with Black and Decker #Giveaway

When we go for a walk we often see the men around us out taking care of their lawns. I am not saying women don’t do it, it just seems to be more favoured by the men in our area. Talking with a friends hubby he was complaining that his weed whacker sucked. If he was talking about a vacuum it would of been great but sadly he wasn’t. Black and Decker recently came out with a new 60V cordless power tool line called the Powercommand. This new line features outdoor tools like weed  ...

Why Gender Doesn’t Affect Our Play

Playtime is always an exciting time in our house. Imagination, creativity and joy just pours from my youngest when he plays. I love playing with him but also sitting back and watching him do it on his own. The one thing I have said from the beginning is that gender would not affect playtime in our home. To often I hear boys should not play with dolls, wear pink or paint their nails. But I can tell you in our house all the above happen and more. Want to know why? I don’t think there  ...
